Fun-loving fundraisers at Brean raise almost £3,000 for hovercraft

A summer of fundraising activities at a Brean caravan park raised almost £3,000 for Burnham-On-Sea's rescue hovercraft group.

Dozens of holidaymakers at Diamond Farm took part in a series of events that ranged from fancy dress competitions and auctions to raffles and car boot sales, to raise funds for BARB, the charity that runs the area's two life-saving hovercrafts.

Diamond Farm's Fundraising Committee handed over a bumper cheque for £2,938.37 to BARB's events organiser, Roger Flower.

Diamond Farm organiser Pam Clark said: "The hovercraft is such an essential service in this area that we wanted to help."

"We've had great support for all our events this year, which have been held over the whole six month summer season, and thank everyone who helped in any way."

Mr Flower praised the efforts of the group, adding: "We are incredibly grateful for your efforts."
